Just a few more days...

I promised myself that this week I was going to "think positive" and hopefully create a better week for myself. You see, I am negative by nature and it has started to really make a poor impact on my well being. Of course I have fun, I laugh, I love life, but it's the negative things that seem to stick to me and drag me down. I'm so tired of being down...

It's only been a few days and I now realize trying to see the "positive" in everything is time consuming, exhausting and leaves me with such a fake and foreign feeling. But dammit, it was my goal to challenge myself and I'm trying like hell to keep it up.

So on I will continue, with just a few more days of keeping a "positive" mental attitude. Although I must say, deep down I'm holding back a big "f-you" to the world.What's the positive to that you ask? I'll at least get to keep my job for holding back my true feelings.

Wait, I have another one! I can't look at getting fatter a bad thing. Since I have gained MORE weight I now can donate my clothes to someone less fortunate and keep the economy going while buying more tarps to cover my big ass. See? A positive in everything...

I don't think anyone can ever be a real "Pollyanna" (or want to!) but there's usually something positive to be found in everything. How about this: In being frustrated with your job, you get some great material for your blog? ;-)

Sometimes it is a huge stretch to find the positive! Just keep your focus on the positives and don't let the negatives get you down, that's the key. I say this not as an expert, but as one who keeps trying to adhere to this approach....I drift off now and then but try to get back on track.... Take care, Katie

Have you ever seen The Secret? I had a knack for negative thinking too, but that really helped turn things around for me. At first it seemed like work, but focusing on the positive really does change things over time, even if only allowing you to handle bad situations a little better.

Have you read the book A New Earth..Awakening your life's purpose. It is from Oprah's book club. It will change your life. It has changed mine.

best of luck being positive, though at times it is hard, I am sure you will look back on this time and laugh. No? Ok well, I tried. :)

I'm totally cracking up as we're moving from one place to a house 10 blocks directly south. I boxed up tons of clothes that will never fit me again. Goodwill got 5 boxes of clothes and 3 boxes of books.

I found a bra sized 32C. That was my size pre-children. My oldest is 19......

PS~I got accepted into the nursing program for next fall.
